My Birthday Celebrations

Since I was so tired out after celebrating on Friday, the day before my birthday, I went to bed early and slept a lot. It was sweet. Unfortunately I still incredibly tired out.

On Friday, in between lunch and dinner, I went to the nearest library and then to an appointment with my chiropractor. I hadn’t been to the chiropractor for about a year-and-a-half, since I had my gall bladder removal surgery.

I had tweeked my neck and pinched nerve bad a few days before that, so I really, really needed to stop in and start back on addressing those issues. I didn’t feel immediately better, and based on past history, I knew that it might take a couple of weeks to start feeling like I was back on the right road to healing that issue once again.

(It does feel much better now, and I’m planning on going again this week and weekly for some time. He does a good job of focusing on this issue and then after  adjusting he uses acupuncture needles on both my forearms, which seems to help me a great deal, based on all the different things that we have tried to do over the years.)

So on Saturday morning I was feeling better, though still having pain and numbness issues going down into my arm and shoulder area on the right side of my back. One of my older bros and I had planned on getting together the weekend before, but I had to cancel due to lack of sleep from continued harassment and noise disturbances from the tenant below me. We had then made plans for Chinese buffet for lunch on my birthday.

My brother has an appalling lack of boundaries and a great love for teasing others. It is a challenge, when seeing him, and he always tends to resume his abusive behaviors, despite repeated challenges by me.  I know that he loves me, but love is not enough. He is getting to be an old geezer, but I still expect him to change and to treat me as though he loves and respects me. He has changed in the last six months, though not enough.

Most of our time went well. We had a nice meal. I had never been to this buffet before, I was not impressed, and I don’t think that I would want to ever go there again. It just wasn’t that good. I guess I’m used to a much better Chinese buffet place than this place was.

I know he wants to be a good brother to me, but his idea of what a good brother is not really the same as my idea of what a good brother is. I went home late in the afternoon and went to bed again early.

Friday Night Birthday Celebrations

Two year ago, for my birthday, I celebrated by having lunch at Chipotle and dinner at a nearby Mexican restaurant as well. For some it might seem like a lot to have two meals in one day. For me, it is just right, as a birthday celebration. Last year I picked something different. This year I wanted to go back to Chipotle. That was fun.

There is a Mexican restaurant that I love to go to that has a free entrée for a birthday person, with I.D. I usually go there for dinner on my birthday. But this year we went the day before, on Friday. Still, my bro paid for everything. Me and two of my siblings and one bro-in-law made for a nice meal. I always have the say dinner combination. It is a huge, full plate. When done they always ask if anyone has room for dessert. Well, no, never. Plus they don’t offer any desserts that would make me want to save room for it.

It was a full day and I was so tired that when I got home I went to bed right away. Such nice deep sleep.
